the markets. >> europe's leaders know they have to get over big political differences if the greek problem is to be solved. >> leaders have to raise above their domestic political agenda, and they will. proposals of the euro group on measures that will risk contagion in your area are you are intelligently needed. >> the fact they are still talking about proposals is surely alarming. this crisis is 18 months old now and investors may be losing patience. matthew price, "bbc news," brussels. >> feels like everyone is losing patience. the ireland situation, junk bond status according to moody. >> yes. the credit rating is now down junk status and by doing these cuts, moody's is doing -- showing that they need to agree and bring in a proper fix for this debt crisis, but it also raise this is discrepancy among the rating agencies. stacey dugard and fitch have ireland raised three notches above jupping status and moody's not only did they downgrade them to junk status but said there could be further doubts come. but the problem for poor ireland, they'll likely be forced to get rid of those bonds,
points of a plan-- no details. but what we can probably gather from this plan-- it has big tax increases in it and all the spending cuts will happen in the out years. well, how many times do politicians think they can pull that one over on the american people? >> reporter: the split among republicans made it difficult for party leaders to determine just what might pass the house. whatever it turns out to be, it still must be acceptable to senate democrats and ultimately to the president. this morning, the senate's majority leader democrat harry reid challenged house speaker john boehner to take matters in hand. >> right now, i'm at a point where we need to hear from the house of representatives. we've planned to go forward over here, but until we hear from the house all our work is for naught. i await word from the speaker. >> reporter: in the meantime, there's general agreement that translating the complex gang of six plan into legislation and votes before august second, is likely unrealistic. that could put the short-term emphasis back on a senate backup plan to let the president raise
'r're not ready to vote f this, are you? >> from a big picture, i'm not ready to vote for this. let me tell you why -- excuse me, george, the bottom line here is, the people who got elected are not excited about being republicans or democrats, they are excited about results. and it is fair to say, we've achieved significant change in the way washington works by paying for the debt ceiling increase and not passing it on to the credit card. we've not achieved entitlement change, we've not reduced the size and scope of government. we're going in the wrong direction at a slower pace and for a lot of people that is not winning. >> you're an internationalist. we talked about all sorts of things like afghanistan. you saw the soldiers yesterday and i asked david plouffe, desperately asking their commander, admiral mullin, whether they will get paid. and he said i can't tell you. >> i can. i can tell them. here's what i would have said, not only are you going to get paid. admiral mullin said the number one national security issue facing this country is debt. and i wish we would have followed on with wha
's population will be sweltering in a dangerous heat wave today. hot air and high humidity will make big cities along the i-95 corridor feel like a sauna. the national weather service says the heat wave may have contributed to 22 deaths already. >>> and london police are expanding their investigation into the phone hacking scandal. an official says it now involves newspapers beyond rupert murdoch's media empire including "the daily mail" and "daily mirror." the police task force has added 15 investigators, bringing the total working on the hacking scandal to 60. >>> nfl owners are meeting in atlanta today to vote on a tentative labor deal with players. the reported ten-year deal, if finalized, would divvy up the league's $9 billion in annual revenue. players were supposed to vote yesterday but never did, suggesting there's still a few details to work out. nfl fans say, enough already. >> 10% unemployment in the country, right? us poor folks scrap and scraping to get by. come on. it's billionaires against millionaires, right? can you not meet in the middle somewhere? >>> here's your chance to ta
a big difference to a lot of people. >> and by the bill and melinda gates foundation. dedicated to the idea that all people deserve the chance to live a healthy productive life. and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> woodruff: the debt ceiling deadlock in washington led to increasingly urgent appeals for action today. but even as talks resumed, white house officials warned not to expect a hallelujah moment. fresh alarms sounded on wall street and around the world today about the consequences of a potential u.s. government default. standard & poors joined moody's in warning the country's credit rating could be downgraded, if the government tries to pay just the interest on its debt. and china said it hopes the u.s. adopts responsible policies. the chinese hold more than $1 trillion in u.s. debt, more than any other foreign creditor. at a senate hearing, federal reserve chairman ben bernanke-- t
played out today? >> in a word, no. this is one of the most extraordinary days in the history of big time criminal justice in the united states. the head spinning pace of events and the rapid turn around in the fortunes of the sides in this case. is like nothing i've ever seen before. and it looks like this case is going to end with a dismissal of the case at this point. it's hard to imagine how there could be a trial at this point when the prosecution has essentially described its main witness as a something close to a compulsive liar. >> i want to hear now from the alleged victim's lawyer, jeffrey. claiming prosecutors have turned on his client. let's listen to this then i want to ask you about it. >> now, it is a fact that the victim here made some mistakes. but that doesn't mean she's not a rape victim. and so all of this stuff that they leaked to the "new york times" was designed to discredit this woman. and i spoke to her a little while ago. and through her tear, through her hurt, she asked me, why did they do this to ni me? and i said, i don't know why. and now, she is determined.
this big high pressure system covering japan. so we're looking at intense sunshine again. but with the heat of the day, we'll certainly be seeing some sporadic afternoon showers. across china, showery weather for northeastern china, and then we've got this very long seasonal rain band affecting the korean peninsula. could get quite intense for you again, north korea as well as jiangsu and an hui, as much as 100 millimeters. flooding is going to be a big, big concern as it has been raining for days. then down towards the southern end of china it remains fairly unsettled. in and around guanxie, hainan island, plenty of showers to be had across indo china as well. 25 degrees in chongqing today. seoul 25, another rapy day. and tokyo is going to be hot and steamy at 32. now we head into north america. very long frontal system impacting north america. today we've got lots of showers developing here across the lower midwest, the plains states up towards the northern rockies. particularly severe near this low pressure system from montana and across illinois as well. significant rain to be found fro
. today it is the u.s. embassy and we understand there was a big flag raising there, a very important day for the united states as it continues to work on sudan. now welcoming this new nation. >> i wonder how important it was, maybe even the symbolism behind having susan rice representing the obama administration, colin powell, secretary of state during the bush administration, that both of them would be there when you talk to a number of sudanese who say it all really got started with the bush administration and the obama administration got to see the punctuation of that effort. >> that's right. president bush and the christian right really in the united states really pushed this issue for a comprehensive peace agreement between the north and south and then the obama administration, you heard president obama at the united nations in september really calling to push this along for north and south to have this referendum and to move towards what they would want for their people. and in the case with south sudan. and the last several months, the united states has been very active in terms o
commitment to big government. what they would like to see is the government sweated down. that's the point they've been trying to make. and there are honest differences and people have a very different view of what kind of society we ought to live in. >> but at a certain point, david, when there was a big deal on the table, and if as you say the president could have brought nancy pelosi along, and i agree with you i think he could have, the republicans would have gotten a great deficit reduction deal if they hadn't committed to the no tax pledge, right? >> but gloria, asking any party to commit to a $1 trillion of tax increases is an awful big lift for a party that is all along stood for lower taxes. and when they also feel a lot of these cuts are going to turn out to be illusory. their experience in the past they sign onto the bargains and they feel the democrats eventually wind up getting what they wanted and what they were promised never materializes. >> but there's a big difference between that and nothing. you know? a big difference. [ overlapping speakers ] >> where do you see the mi
are no longer serious about solving big problems. and that was sort of the subject of my first book in 2007 looking ahead to the 2008 presidential race. and the big issues in education, and health care, and energy, the environment and jobs, and so on, and i think that you can really see that playing out in washington right now as we have this debate about the budget. and that this budget debate in some ways has become about paul ryan and his plan and his thinking of the budget. but that the idea that we as a nation can all agree that there is one guy in washington talking seriously about the budget is an indictment of everyone else in congress who is not, that we're sort of at this point where you want to talk about the budget? there's one guy is taking this really seriously. he's the one who's thinking about how to solve the budget problem. these are huge issues. generational issues that are going to have to be solved one way or another. and the fact that there's not a larger debate that involves more people on both sides of the aisle i think is a stunning indictment of where we are in a p
and cuff links and cowboy boots in the ring with him. >> yahoo. >> mike: don't touch my junk food. big government getting bigger and advertisers in the food industry say they feel pressured by new federal guidelines. shouldn't parents decide what their kids eat. "fox & friends" sunday morning continues right now. ♪ >> hey, everybody, good warning by mike jarrett there. >> ainsley: good to see you. >> mike: and gets better looking every week. >> dave: you, too, sweetheart. >> ainsley: we're glad to be waking you up this morning. hope your family is doing well. >> dave: the best news for all of you saturday night we thought a big deal was going to happen. and now it appears that a smaller deal is on the way because john boehner late last night made the announcement that we're giving up talks on that grand deal that's been discussed where republicans would give in on tax hikes, democrats would give in on entitlements and this guy what john boehner had to say. >> now, we can't agree if there's any new taxes involved and of course on the other side the democrats say here we go. >> so, bo
on every aspect of our society to get this problem under control. >> [inaudible] >> everyone agrees a big deal with the best. the president says that. i believe that. the folks behind the believe that. we still believe it is possible to have a comprehensive proposal here that in a serious way addresses this enormous debt problem we have. i have not given up hope that that may happen yet. thanks a lot. >> a group of senate democrats held their own news conference, where they reiterated their demand that any budget agreement include more tax revenues from those making more than a million dollars a year. this news conference begins with a michigan senator. this is half an hour. >> good afternoon. on april 15, the house of representatives voted to end medicare. the wanted to use that money to balance the budget. rather than using it to balance the budget, they used it for huge new giveaways to millionaires and special interests. their plan protect spending on massive tax earmarked for drug companies, oil companies, companies that outsource jobs, and well-connected special interests. let me ju
. and this going on in washington is a big part of the reason why. before i served in congress i ran a small business in ohio. i was amazed at how different washington d.c. operated than every other business in america. where most american businesses make the hard choices to pay their bills, live within their means. in washington, more spending and more debt is business as usual. well, i've got news for washington, those days are over. president obama came to congress in january and requested businesses as usual. he had ner routine increase in the national debt, but we in the house said not so fast. here was a president asking for the largest debt increase in american history on the heels of the largest spending binge in american history. and here's what we got for that massive spending binge. a new health-care bill that most americans never asked for. a stimulus bill that's more effective in producing material for late night comedians than it was in producing jobs. and a national debt that has gotten so out of hand it sparked a crisis without precedent in my lifetime or yours. the united st
believes that the boehner problem is anything more than a big, wet kiss to the right wing. i mean the tea party. that's what i mean. it's too bad the caucus is run by so little people. >> when i asked the plan, the aids pointed to a speech. congress can't vote on a speech. a veto threat won't prevent default. >> we are urging the republicans to step back, put their party caucuses aside, put their pledges to grover norquist aside and put this country first. >> it's unfair from the president of the united states to lead from behind. it's unfair for the president of the united states not to come forward with a specific plan that, perhaps to be considered by both bodies, but only to go out and give lectures. >> we are not going to hold this country hostage to the tea party. those folks over there, about 80 of them, they pledged to grover norquist. i want to pledge allegiance to the united states of america. that's what we should be doing. >> good morning. it is thursday, july 28th. look at the beautiful shot of new york city. welcome to "morning joe." yes, with us on set -- >> look at him. >>
to be factored in as one big lie, the judge disagreed, jon. >> and the state also wants money from casey anthony when this is all over, right? >> hundreds of hundreds of thousands of dollars is my estimate is what could be levied against casey anthony, not only the cost for the six-month investigation, the searching, the following up of leaders, the interviewing, the trying to track down all of these imaginary people, plus the prosecution which has been quite costly over the past 2 1/2 to three years as they had to pay for a lot of lab tests, a lot of investigators, so the judge is going to rule on that financial burden that casey anthony is likely to be levied in about 30 days from now, and for the moment, though, bottom line, casey anthony is heading back to the orange county jail. jon: a lot of people thought the saga could effectively end today. it goes on. phil keating, from orlando, thanks. alisyn: fox news is america's election headquarters, congresswoman michelle bachmann is stepping up her campaign for president, releasing a new television ad in iowa today, the minnesota congresswoman u
special interests and big corporations tax breaks that middle-class americans do not get. it is pretty simple. i do not think oil companies should continue to get big tax breaks when they make tens of billions in profits. i do not think hedge fund managers should pay taxes at a lower rate than their secretaries. i do not think it is fair to ask nothing of someone like me when the average family sees their income decline over the last decade. when many of you are just trying to stretch every $1 as far as it will go. we should not put the burden of deficit reduction on the backs of people who have already borne the brunt of this recession. it is not reasonable and it is not right. if we are going to have seniors, students, middle-class americans to separate, then we have to ask corporations and wealthy americans to share. we have to ask everyone to play their part because we are all a part of the same country. we are all in this together. i have put things on the table important to me and democrats, and i expect republican leaders to do the same. after all, we have worked together like t
say privately they are -- there is still a big problem with corruption. nato's deployment has peaked. the question now is will the afghans be able to do the job of the british soldiers have been doing as they start to leave? >> that is the question indeed. on the ground, the fighting continues. in washington, three american senators, three -- two democrats and one republican pended op-ed in the "new york times" which called for a more rapid withdrawal of all american combat troops. tom udall is among those arguing the case. thank you for joining me. you criticize president obama for not bringing back american troops fast enough from afghanistan. what would you like him to do? >> the thing we have to realize is the thing we went in with objectives. those objectives were displacing a government that was harboring terrorists. terrorist camps, al qaeda was hooked up with them, and osama bin laden was in the region. now we have an elected government, we have completely changed the landscape, we have trained approximately 400,000 afghans in terms of army and police. al qaeda is decreased t
on that's really designed to do one big grand strategic thing that wherever you look in the middle east and that is to shore up the strength, the responsiveness of the state wherever we're looking, whether we're iraq or iran today or afghanistan to prevent pakistan from beginning to sell the idea of a two-state solution and they're all within this september of an international state system and we're going in the wrong direction. >> what i see on the ground and i travel often to afghanistan is to be honest with all the power of the u.s. military, you have an incredibly competent military but in the end that's not enough to substitute for the poor governance that the afghanistan paid and the institutions provide. and so we're pushing businesses to walk uphill and we never get there and i'm sure you -- it's hard to find anybody to defend president karzai's governance. >> that's true, too. but good governance brings us back to something like the democratization, something like that procedure and it's going to be their own culture -- but it's going to be something the people will have a way
acres, 60 below zero in the winter. big bears. big salmon. i came back at superintendent as mount ranier. i had hawaii, guam and the sierras. i was asked to come back and serve as the 18th director. i went through senate confirmation and have been back here since. >> earlier this year, there was three hikers in yosemite that went through a waterfall and presumed to be dead. what the park system doing to keep them safe? guest: the experience was very tragic. i hate to hear about those things. in our job, we are to inform the public to protect themselves from these hazards. it's really not our job to fence off the hazards of the national park. part of that is part of the experience. to see wild america, at least as much that we can create. in the case of the myrtle falls incident, there is a barrier and signs. unfortunately, these individuals crossed those, entered the water, slipped and went over the falls. it's incredibly tragic. we will renew our efforts to warn the public about these thing. yosemite this time of year would have very, very low water flows. because of all the snow, we go
growth area. it's a big growth is in the mobile sector and not in the pc market which had to lower the expectations for the pc business for the months ahead. there is a mixed outlook and that is the reason why the stock of intel is losing in the thursday session. >> what other shares or stories are standing out in the session? >> basically, we got extremely good numbers if you compare them to expectations from morgan stanley, the last big american bank to come out with earnings. the stock is trading up by 1.9%. that helps to support financial stocks and wall street. we had a pretty gloomy outlook from pepsi. they had decent numbers for the past but the outlook is a bit disappointing. that stock is one of the bigger losers with a drop of about 5%. >> thank you very much. staying with earnings, things are looking up for american express. cardholders spend a record amount in the second quarter of this year and that sent profits surging to over $1.3 billion. this was a bit of a comeback. many corporate clients cut back on spending during business trips during the financial crisis and f
sniping on a mission that we joined. there is still a big problem with corruption. the question now, will the afghans be able to do the job the british soldiers have been doing as they start to leave? >> for more on these challenges and calls for an even quicker drawdown of u.s. troops, i spoke earlier with a former adviser to the u.s. military in afghanistan. so, seth, have david cameron asking the taliban to stop fighting, put down their weapons, join the political process. what do you think the chances are that might happen? >> there are elements of the taliban and other insurgent groups that are willing to talk about this option. they have been fighting for three decades in afghanistan. people are tired. i think right now what we're seeing is some elements willing, some elements unwilling. based on the fact that many of them believe they are winning right now, that the u.s. and other allies are leaving, i think it is unlikely that they will cut a deal now. not wait it out -- why not wait it out? >> to what extent is the taliban looking at things like this letter-signing, seeing
of the most powerful yet controversial characters in afghanistan. this is seen as a big blow to the fragile security in the southern kandahar area. people have killed four people in northwest italy. a human rights groups said that four were killed when the troops attack villages in the region. an iranian man was arrested at bangkok international airport as he attempted to smuggle $1.6 million worth of methamphetamine into the country. the drug had been disguised as a work of art weighing up to 10 kilos each. another day of high drama of the phone hacking scandal. every minute something new is happening. news corp. has withdrawn its controversial bid for a full takeover of the british broadcaster bskyb. this came shortly before the british parliament began a debate on the phone hacking scandal. >> rupert murdoch's in the news for the wrong reasons. this is one of the great humiliations' for his career. "we believe that the proposed acquisition of bskyb would benefit both companies. it is too difficult to progress in this climate." there was protests inside and outside of the deal. >> i have
of reasons for this we can discuss-- is as high as it's been. >> rose: so that's really one of the big questions. >> in europe it's the same thing. >> rose: u.s. leadership. >> yeah. >> rose: what is it you thi they expect from the united states in 2011 and twelve after all that's taken place? the economic collapse that we had. the wars we were engaged in and two that we are still engaged in in different levels. what does the world want from america? >> well, leadersh, i think, is the short answer to the question. but we can start with asia and go to europe and go to the middle east. in asia, they want the ited states to be present. they wanthe united states that ey can count on to meet its obligations anpromises t ales and partners, and we have been doing that. you know, this is a mistake... not mistake. it's not a coincidence that secretary clinton took her first trip as secretary of state to asia. >> rose: and she's back in india as we speak. since dean rusk in 1961. and we have really engaged... they want u.s. presence. i think the asians want to see the unitedtates engaged and, by
to take on our deficit is with a balanced approach. one where the wealthiest americans and big corporations pay their fair share too. >> reporter: meanwhile the leader of the democratic majority in the senate, harry reid, has been working on a competing proposal. it would raise the debt ceiling and cut $2.7 trillion in spending. the savings would come from federal agencies and defense spending but avoid controversial changes to entitlement programs and the u.s. tax code. >> so now all the republicans have to do is say yes. unfortunately, the republicans who used to run the congress on the caucuses are being driven by the radical, right wing that is so in tune with the tea party. they want their leaders to ignore the american people as they're doing. they want their leaders to ignore the business leaders like the chamber of commerce that they're ignoring. and even a majority of republicans around this country want something to happen and they're refusing to do that. >> reporter: this afternoon reid's plan got official endorsement from the white house spokesman describing it as a
